I love picking my papers and getting all the embellies in the right place after moving them around and around and exchanging from the stash for something else - sometimes several times.... and finally its just how it's supposed to be... but the sticking down is just the worst of scrapping.  I LOVE getting my projects to that laid-out stage, then to move bits of it to stick down...they never go back the same way!!!
However, it is what it is... and whatever form, they usually end up here....

Just LOVE the moulin Range and made up this little mini-album from the Mouline Rouge Note Cards in a box You can make this project from any line of the Note Cards not just Moulin Rouge - I had my eye on it because it fit Hannah at dancing really well!

Sticking two matching cards together back to back made it thick enough for a page in the album

Some of the cards didnt match perfectly because they are asymmetrical

So a bit of paint

And ink helped heaps!


Then using my CropAdile and some eyelets gave it that 'finished' look rather than a heap of journaling cards stuck together :wink:

Arent the Prima Trinkets cute! Perfect for this!

I used the Moulin Rouge Chipboard Stickers here (little square one)

Julies Sketch Challenge at Scrap Therapy
This is a little Hannah (2yrs old) with her two favourite things


This is a Hannah at 4yrs...  She really loved this little rocker.
My friend Tania watched over the making of these little houses,
flowers and birds...she's an expert at it!
I added my thing to it and
I'm really happy the way they turned out!

I so so agree. I just finished a LO tonight and halfway through I decided to start sticking which is something I would normally do at the end but there was sooo much that I broke my rule. It is far too time consuming.
Well your album is just gorgeous and I just love your pages. The Shabby Challenge page is my fave and it just has so much detail.

The mini album is so gorgeous and I know what you mean about sticking everything down lol.
but the worst thing is when a gust of wind blows thought the door and the whole LO ends up all over the floor... lol
